Father Carlos Martins, CC presented a most moving lesson on Relics of the Saints and and how they became a gift of the Church to assist us on our path to choose to be a Saint. As a packed church sat in attentive silence to hear every word Father said. He explained in detail the process for items to be declared relics. There were 6 relics - most treasured - a small piece of the True Cross that St. Helen found; next a sliver from the Crown of Thorns, and a Shard of iron shaved from the Lance that pierced Jesus’s Side. A second table held a speck of cloth from Our Blessed Mother’s veil, a relic of St.Joseph, and the Apostles. The annex to the Church held over a hundred Saint’s relics with a brief story of each.
